Mashpee – As part of Community Health Center of Cape Cod’s continued focus on quality improvement, innovation, and responding to the consumer voice, the Health Center is now offering a convenient new prescription refill tool, mobileRx. Patients can download the mobileRx app to their iPhone and Android and set-up a personal account to use securely. Once patients have selected their preferred Health Center pharmacy location from the search tool on the app, they can begin to request prescription refills and access additional information through the app. Prescriptions can also be saved to a personal account for easy refills at a later date.
“It’s important that our pharmacy departments continue to offer multiple avenues to enhance medication compliance and patient access,” said John Correira, Director of Pharmacy Services. “This is all done right through a secure application on their mobile phone, mobileRx saves time and the technology is very user friendly.”
Patients can request up to six refills at a time, and if more are needed the process can be repeated. The mobileRx app also displays if the patient has refills remaining on their prescription, the last time a medication was filled, if a prescription is currently ready for pick-up, along with pharmacy information including hours, contact numbers, directions, and policies.
Community Health Center of Cape Cod has two pharmacies providing prescriptions, one in Mashpee (107 Commercial Street) and the other in Bourne (123 Waterhouse Road). Both locations have knowledgeable staff and offer convenient hours. Health Center patients can use either pharmacy to access prescriptions written by a patient’s Health Center provider (medical, dental, behavioral health, and walk-in). The Bourne location also serves as a Retail Pharmacy, which is open to the public, with the ability to fill prescriptions from community providers.
Health Center pharmacists ensure patients fully understand their medications and check for any possible harmful interactions or contraindications Pharmacists also help find alternatives to reduce cost and the number of medications being taken. Community Health Center of Cape Cod’s pharmacy team will make sure patients are getting the best results from their medications.
